OKC Thunder notebook: Derek Fisher responds to Jazz fans' boos

Thunder point guard Derek Fisher played his final game at Utah on Tuesday night. And it's safe to say it was bittersweet.

“But I get a kick out of the reaction when they call me a traitor or a liar or whatever. I don't think anybody has proven that my daughter didn't have cancer, so there isn't really anything to lie about, or any reason to be considered a traitor.”

Fisher went on to call the people of Salt Lake City great people and say that he and his family still considers themselves connected to them.

“I try to remind myself that those people who say those things don't represent Salt Lake City as a whole, and the way people feel about me or my family,” Fisher wrote.



Thabo Sefolosha sustained an undisclosed injury to his left hand early in the third quarter of Tuesday's game at Utah. The injury limited Sefolosha to three minutes in the second half and was part of the reason he remained sidelined for the entire fourth quarter.

His status is unclear for Thursday's game at Denver, but it seems likely he will play when you consider Thunder coach Scott Brooks said he probably could have reinserted Sefolosha.

“That kept him out,” Brooks said of the injury. “We'll see how he feels. I probably could have thrown him back in. But we made a nice run so I just wanted to stick with the guys that made that run.”
